I'm using an iMacG5 Rev A, 17inch.

Incredibibly the LiveCD for Edgy Knot 1 boots, Gnome comes up, and for the first time ever I also have sound under a linux system.

Unfortunately, the thermal/fan control still isn't enabled (it's a kernel option!) and my native screen resolution wasn't recognised (though the work-around for Breezy resulted in native screen resolution so I think this may just be a problem with the LiveCD).

Anyway, it seems to me the initial problem for all systems has been fixed with the latest kernel. What still needs to be worked around is X-Windows configurations for the Nvidia and ATI chips, as well as the thermal control.
